known mechanism for perennial plants to conserve and reuse stored N that can substantially impact the N use efficiency ( Coleman et al., 2004 ; Hinesley et al., 1991 ). Nitrogen shortages lead to reduction of the RuBisCo (ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate

treatment ( Table 3 ). Similar examples for preferential partitioning of photosynthetic carbon to the roots and decrease in shoot–root ratio are well documented for other species under N deficiency ( Hermans et al., 2006 ). Nitrogen-deficient Eustoma

, and it is also an important factor to improve yield and quality of tea ( Ruan et al., 2001 ). Nitrogen, either from organic or mineral fertilization, plays an important role in the growth and development of tea tree. Meanwhile, it is an important

contrast to total N content, in our 15 N tracer uptake observations, the aboveground tissue 15 N enrichment was greater in PreHerb trees than Sod or Mulch trees, except for trunk and scaffold biomass ( Fig. 7A ). For belowground tissues, the δ 15 N ratios

N immobilization. Treating (precharging) wood-based substrates with N before planting is a strategy to decrease the C:N ratio and hence reduce the requirement for additional fertilizer N for plants grown in wood-based substrates as a result of

, synthetic sources of nitrogen (fixed by the Haber–Bosch process) are energy intensive to produce, prohibited by agencies that certify organic practices, and do not provide a source of carbon to build soil OM ( Crews and Peoples, 2004 ). The use of composts
